Colonization and Land Use
World War 2 is an example of colonization and land use.
It started because Germany, Italy and Japan started taking territories that did not belong to them.
"The League of Nations had proven ineffective in halting the aggression of Japan in China, the Italian invasion of Ethiopia, and the German takeover of Austria."
The united states protested against the actions of these countries however Britain and France agreed to let the take the territories they wanted.
The colonization of other countries led to cultures being spread around the world.
Columbus discovered North and South america which were called ''the new world''
He traded with the people there. The people there traded gold, cotton, lead tea and tomatoes.
These resources that were found in the Americas proved to the leaders of the old world that the land there will be rich if the establish civilizations.
Numerous European expeditions sailed to the Americas to discover the new land.
England, France, Spain, Portugal and Netherlands founded colonies in the Americas.
At the time of European contact the indigenous people of the Americas spoke over 800 languages
By 1750, Portugal colonizes Brazil, England and France go to war for North America and Spain solidifies control over South America and California.
In the future, when new land will be discovered land will be bought by different nation and they might go to war.
The resources that will be found in places that we've never discovered before will be only for the people that discovered it and would be sold.
Since social media is advancing new websites or platforms may become owned by different nations and not just companies.
Most countries that have the new resource that is discovered may be at risk of being attacked or colonized by a nation that wants ownership of the specific resource.
